Everyday the girl comes home with a lighter load as they return their books that were on loan. There is less homework too. The other day I overheard the girl telling her brother “Now very relaxed. There is only 1 or 2 pages of homework.”
They have finished their year end tests, collected their results and on Friday they both had a Children’s Day party at their respective schools. In the car both of them chatted excitedly about their day in school and showed each other their gifts and food that they received. They exchanged gifts and shared their food.
Each day the school bag gets lighter, the homework gets lesser and the heart feels lighter. After school they do not need to do tons of homework, rush to complete revision or anything. They get to play and play! How lovely. For mummy too, who does not need to supervise any homework or revision.
There is only 2 weeks left for the school year. A rather relaxed 2 weeks. 🙂
